If you have used a "handle" please send me your real name as that saves me time writing scores of people who have missed the registration instructions!

If I'm required to use my first and last name, then I really don't wish to continue my membership. Sorry, but I value my privacy.

A huge welcome to you!!

If there is a privacy issue, that can be dealt with by a PM to me. We have had several cases of a real need for protection and I'm always understanding. Please don't vanish as we value every photgrapher :)

The issue is that for 99% of people there is no such special need and knowing a real person allows respect and accountability. We value an open professsional forum where we know who we are talking to.

To benefit everyone, OPF is self regulated pretty well by a sense of balance and fairness.

So talk to me :)
